In The Dark Knight Rises:
Writer, director, God. If you need us to tell you what Chris Nolan did on
The Dark Knight Rises
, then we’d like you to share your hard-earned cave survival skills with us, just in case we’re the ones who get trapped under a rock slide next time around.
Nolan will be helping Zach Snyder bring an edgy and realistic vision of Superman to the big screen. It’ll be a gritty and down to earth retelling of a classic superhero story. If only he had some kind of experience with that sort of thing.
After that, your guess is as good as ours – Nolan’s notorious for shrouding his projects in a veil of secrecy so solid even Batman couldn’t punch his way through it.
Our money’s on
, Nolan’s long-gestating Howard Hughes project.
“It’s the best thing I ever wrote,” Nolan said of the script. “It's going to be a very, very unusual script and a very unusual movie."
"We’ll meet the Howard Hughes who spent much of 1948 sitting naked in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel with only a pink dinner napkin covering his genitals as he screened movies from his studio, RKO Pictures, and ran up an $11 million tab.
“The Hughes who — obsessed with food safety — once bought every franchise restaurant chain in his home state of Texas, and who was similarly so concerned about air quality that he installed an aircraft filtration system in his 1954 Chrysler New Yorker, taking up its entire trunk.
“The Howard Hughes who had his hair cut and nails trimmed only once a year, and who was seemingly as addicted to Baskin Robbins Banana Ripple ice cream as he was to regular codeine injections; the Hughes who at the end of his life considered only Mormons trustworthy enough to be let into his inner circle."
In 2014 it’ll have been ten years since Scorsese’s take on Hughes’ story. We’d say that feels like a good release date.
